A Postmaster is required to give notice &j utter, (returning a paper does not answer the law when a subscriber does not take his paper out o! the office, and state the reasons tor its not being taken; and a neglect to do so makes the Postmas" ter repeoneible to the publishers for the payment 2. Any person who takes a paper from the Post office, whether directed to his name or another, 01 whether he has subscribed or not is responsible for the pay. 3. If a person orders his paper discontinued, hs must pay all arrearages, or the publisher may continue to send it until payment is made, and ollect the whole amount, whether it be taken from the office or not. There can he no legal discontin uence until the payment is made. 4. If the subscriber orders his paper to be stopped at a certain time, and the publisher con tinueato send, the subscriber is bound to pay for It, if ke takee it out of Ike Port Office. The law proceeds upon the ground that a man must pay Tor what he uses. 5. The courts have decided that refusing to take newspapers and periodicals from the Post office, or removing and having them uncalled for, is prima facia evidence of intentional fraud.

Du PAGE county, Illinois, is in a state o anarchy. In consequence of a division or the county seat question, feeling runs high the people of one section threatening tic other with mob violence. The exeitcuieni is represented as fearful, so that the lives and property of citizens are in jeopardy, arc. 1 it is feared that before the matter is ended soldiers will have to be called out to pro serve order. THE mildness of the winter in Louisiana, so far, has proved a great annovauce tc huntersjmd lovers of wild game. But few ducks have been seen or killed, while the smaller fry ofthe feathered tribes are remark ably scarce. In New Orleans there have been few wild ducks in market this seaaan worth buying, and not more than eight or ten days of weather cold enough to make fires agreeable SCIENTIFIC men attribute the late severe summer and autumn weather, the storms, floods and earthquakes that have prevailed in various places, to the influence of the sun, which they assert is in a highly agita ted state. It is also asserted by them that the body of magnetic light now shooting from the sun in every direction will, by the beginning of next year, have extended far enough to exercise material influence upon the earth, and then it is said we may expect th; t phenomena will be observable such as have not yet come under the notice of the human race. EXPERIMENTAL HANGING.— At an early hour on Sunday morning, a young lad resi ding on Long Island committed suicide by hanging himself. He loosed a rein from a horse bridle and made it fast to a beam in the barn, and making a noose upon the downward end, he climbed upon a horse manger and swung himself off. He was but nine years of age. The cause of his singu lar proceeding is unknown, bnt those who knew him say that he has hoard so much about the coming execution of Burke, that he had a great anxiety to know how it would feel to be hung, and he, no doubt, tried tbe experiment, little thinking that it would cost him his life. VICTORIA'S FAMHX— Of Queen Victo ria's nine children, four are already rnar ' ried, and of these only one, the Grown ; Princess of Prussia, has left her nativeland. I The wife of Prince Louis of Hesse an l the ; wife of Prince Christian both live in Lon- I don, and the probability is that the young :er sons and danghters, when they come to | marry and settle, wiil continue in England. ; Counting the collateral branches, there are : in England about twenty-six Princes and | Princesses of tbe biood-ro- I. To these the j nation pays in pensions the .m ot $555,000 J yearly; and as the younger sons and daugh ! ters of the Queen grow up, it will be asked | to pay a good deal more. | CATHOLIC COUNCILS.—OU the Bth day of j December, the Roman Catholic feast of the | Immaculate Conception will commence at : Home, —the first council of the Vatican, and j the twentieth council recognized by tLe i Roman Catholic Church as Ecumenical. I Councils of the Church are ecumenical, gtn ; eral, or particular. An Ecumenical Council ! represents the whjle Church, and it suffices j that the chief part of the Church is present | and in agreement with the Pontiff. A Gen eral Council is one which, through its not being confirmed by the Pope, is not held to | represent the universal Church. Particular ; -Councils are those which represent only a I portion of the Church. The definitions of 1 an Ecumencial Council in matters of faith i or morals (but not in matters of discipline) arc, when approved by the Pope, held to be certain and infallible. Other councils have | only so mneh authority as have tbe churches I they represent, but ne not infallible unless j confirmed by the Pope. MINISTER CURTIN IN RUSSlA.— Private ' advices received in Washington give some j details concerning the presentation of ex • Governor, Andrew G. Curtin, of Pennsylva | riia, minister of the United States to Kus j sia, to the Czar, on the 28th of October, at the winter palace, St. Petersburg. Mr. Curtin wore tbe ordinary dress of a citizen. | and did not appear in court dress. The ! presentation speeches were made on both i sides in French. The pre erodings were : published at length in the same language in ! the Court Journal. Mr. T. J. Coffey was | presented as Secretary of Legation. Hon. i N. P. Banks, of Massachusetts, was pre | sented to the Czar by Minister CurtiD, dur ! iog a three weeks' stay at St. Petersburg, and was invited by the Emperor to aecom ; pany him on his personal staff, which he l did in the full uniform of an American ma- I jor general, at a review of the Imperial j Guard. SHERIFF'S SALES. —The Supreme Court | of Pennsylvania has decided, Judge Sbars j wood delivering the opinion, that a rnort- I gage, or a purchaser at Sheriff s sale, is not | bound to look beyond the judgement docket ■ to ascertain whether the entries thereon are ■ properly made by authority, and that where ! there is a defective entry of a judgment, or an unauthorized entry of satisfaction, the Prothonotary is liable for damages to any party injured. Hence, where the Prathon tary, without the authority of the Court, entered on his docket egainsta judgement, "satisfied on fi J".," it was held that the entfy was perfectly tegular and conclusive as to third persons to akooi the judgement itself regularly docketed was constructive notice, and that it was not necessary tc search further and ascertain whether there was any record of an order of the Court di recting sueh satisfaction. THE CARDIFF GIANT.— The Cardiff Gi ant, which has been creating so much ex citemcnt in the Onondaga Valley, New York, has been subjected to a careful exam ination from several scientific gentlemen. This stone giant exhibits the marks of the sculptor's tools very plainly, and some oi them, particularly where the legs and arms join tbe body, are exceedingly fresh. The anatomy of the figure is said to be perfect. The statue, which is a reclining figure, carv ed from gvpsum, was discovered in a bed of muck, nearly covered with water. Ex periments were made on the Foluhjlity ol various kinds of gypsum under different circumstances, and it was ascertained that s block of this material, weighing seventect ounces, exposed to the constant action ol rain water for forty eight hours lost OIK c—v.-. The results of a carefully conducted series of experiments of the above charac tor, when applied to the stone giant, prove, it is asserted, that the statue has only beer buried 370 days, and that tbe antiquated appearance is due to exposure to the dis solving effects of water. BEDFORD, PA.7FRIDAY, DEC. 10. |K9. , _ I SOMEBODY'S BOY. BY BAKTOS K. BBISCOB. Is somebody's mother thinking ; That sombody's boy gets "tight," While somebody's boy is drinking Somewhere or other to-night? Who was that somebody lugging Too heavy a load to day Of brandy and rum, and hugging The posts on the corner, eh ? Who rs that handsome fellow, The handsomest face we meet, Who comes home so late and so He can scarcely keep his feet? W ho is that somebody reeling First from the left to the right, With empty pockets, yet fueling As rich as Croesus to night? Ah ! pavements have grown unsteady ; They wave like a wind blown sheet, And have interfered already With somebody's drunken "feet." And still to the world his drinking Is neither here nor there ; Rut somebody's pa, I'm thinking, Or sister or mother would care. He'll wake to morrow, it's patent, And he'll come down stairs all right, And look altnosljike he hadn't Been out on a "tear" last uight. And somebody's mother and sister, \N hen told that brother gets "tight," Are almost inclined to blister Your cheeks with their hands outright! I But somebody's sins are wearing The jewel of life away; And somebody's boy, wayfaring, Will die in the street some day! THE REFUSAL. Go, Hnry, go! the hour has come W hen you and I forever part: Ihose twining cords are now unloosed That bound thee closely to my heart. X'o, I will ne'er consent to be The wife of one whose reckless soul Is led by passion's seething hand, To patronize the poison bowl. I spurn the cup with all its friends, And feel determined not to link My destiny with one whose deeds Would place me soon on ruin's brink. Yes, go ! and I'll be free again ; For I had rather spend my life In loneliness, and die unwept, Than be a loatheeome drunkard's wife. IIIED FARLEY'S LOVE. ".Now niiud, Fred, you'll be on band di rectly after the Fourth. If anything should happen to call me away from home, Isabel, tny wife—"Bella/' wc call her—wi!l enter tain you until I return. I want you to see Bella, and she wants to see you. You'll 6ay I ought to he a happy uian. And re member you are to stay a month, at least. Oh, we will have rare sport." l 'l shall be there if I'm alive, Ilarry, de pend upon that; and if you suffer yourself to be called away before I come, and arc not there to receive me, I shall proceed at once to claim the attention of your Isabel." "All right, oldfellevr; you'll be warmly received, I can assure you. Bella is ans ious to see the old chum of whom I have told her so much." Harry Lynde and Fred Farley had been friends from early youth—bad been ei.ums at college—and were now as warmly attach ed to each other as friends and brothers can be. They were young, the first being four and twenty and the other a year younger. Harry had been married six months, and had settled down in a pleasant villa on the Hudson, provided and furnished by lis wife's father. Fred had just come into possession of an ample fortune ; and before going into business, which was ready far him in the shape of a partnership in a heavy commercial house, he had planned to enjoy a summer's vacation in the country— and his first trip out of the mettopolis was to be, as we have seen, to bis chum's on the Hudson. The Fourth of July came and passed, and on the following Monday, Fred Farley made his way up the river. Tie Lund the dwell ing of his friend one of the most rouiaDtie and delightfully situated vilka he had ever seen, and as he entered the park, he asked | the coachman if 31r. Lynde was at home. "No, sir; he went away on Fiiday on ! business. But he expected you, at d told me that' the horses were ut your service." "And Mrs. Isabel Lynde, is she at home?" "Yes, sir, ami I thiuk she will provide for you very well." Fred had playfully deekri d to his friend that he hoped he should find him gone up on his ai rival, so that he might claim the undivided attention of Bella: but now that the prospect was so near verification, he felt a little bashful and uncomfortable. But the coach was at the door, and he re:olved to put on a bold face and meet the lady without blushing or flinching ; for he had no doubt that Harry had repeated to her all his nonsensica' rematks. "Mrs. Lynde, this is Mr. Fred Farley," said the smart and. affable coachman, as he led the way to the piazza. Mr. Farley. Mrs. Isabel Lynde." Fred looked upon the woman who stood upon the piazza to welcome him. Poiis and houris, aud sylphs and fairies, all lost caste iu his estimation from that moment. A more beautiful being he bad never be held ; and yet she was not one of the airy, gossamer beauties, such as he had seen in ballrooms and drawing-rooms, but a substan tial, whok-soul'd, frank-fae.d, loveable wo man, with whole volumes of truth and po etry in the sweet shimmer of her smile, and in the soft liquid light of her large brown eyes. "lam sorry Harry is not a£ home, Mr. Farley, but we will try and make you com fortable until he returns. He wou'd not have enne if he could have belt ed it." "He had business, I suppose," temarked Fred, as they entered the drawing room. "Yes; he was called to Albany, and may soon have to go to Buffalo. It was some important railroad business." For a little time Fred felt very bashful. If Mrs. Lynde had been common or plain, he would have felt differently; bat it seem ed like profanation to claim tbe attention of one so 1 vely and accomplished. But why should he suffer such impediments to com- fort to stand in his way? Ilia friend had bade him to make himself at home, and he mount to ay. As he came out of his re serve, the lady grew brilliant. She had ev idently received instructions from her hus band to do all in her power for the proper entertainment of their guest, and she was trying to obey. When evening came, and there was a j hitch in the conversation, Fred proposed music. Isabel asked birn if he sang. lie ; tail, he had done so—he would try if she Wished it that is, he would accompany her. In truth, Fred possessed one of the lichcst,, most melodious and finely attuned voices ever heard ; and I may as well add here, that the fttnaie-portion of his acquaintances had pronounced him one of the handsomest men they had ever seen. lie sang with Is abel Lynde. He was charmed with her sweet voice, and she appeared no less charm ed by his surpassing melody. After this, they talked of Harry. Fred praised him to rh.-ikies, while Isabel modJßt)y claimed for hiui that he was true and noble. fi.e first night in his friend's home, and yet Fred Farley found himself wishing that his friend had never been—that sueh a man as llary Lynde had never existed—or, at least, had never apeared in that section of the country. "Oh, if T could have foilnd this sweei prize before Harry bad ever known her Ah, Fred Farley, what are you doing? cov eting tour neighbor's wife? and that neigh bor your dearest friend and ebuin? I an ashamed of you ! Beware I" And so the smitten guest talked to him self until sleep closed his senses. Titer dreams came, and Isabel Lynde haunted his uneasy slumbers in all sorts of strangf ways. In the morning he arose, and resolved that he would not expose himself to the danger which he could already foresee in a too free interchange of poetry and romance with his friend's wile; but, alas ! for human resolutions, when the erratic god has strung his bow and set his dart! After breakfast, the coachman came to see if Mr. Farley would ride. The morning was delightful, and the horses were in need of exercise. Yes Mr. Farley would ride; but could be do less than a.k Mrs. Lynde to accompany him? He a.-ked her; she assented with ev ident satisfaction. ' Harry bade me not to losc.sight of you, Mr. Farley, and I suppose I must obey him." 0. what a bewitching smile—what a won drous depth of feeling io the brown eyes, and what music in the voice! Fred felt a pang at his heart, a glow through bis whole frame, and he knew that he had fallen iu lore. What should he do? He must fight against it while he could. Of all the companions who had ever shared his social hours, Fred bad never be fore found one like Isabel. He called her so in his thoughts. She was as intellectual, and as witty, and as frank, and as open hearted, as she was beautiful; and in the in iwrn parity of her soul, she never dreamed that harm could come of it to Harry's chum. Three days passed, and a letter came from Harry, saying that be bad been obliged to go to Buffalo. One week more, and poor Fred was be side himself with the ardent, all-powerful, and pervading passion that had possessed him. And this was not the worst. He was sure that Isabel loved him; he could not be mistaken, her very efforts to conceal the emotb.u, her growing timidity and reserve, the changing color of her face, the drooping of the silken lashes, the soft fluttering of the voice, all, all told him that she loved him. Once more, what should he do? There was but one alternative. He muit leave the villa at once. Us felt that he was wronging his best and dearest friend. That evening he said to Label that he must go to New- York on the morrow—he must take the Albany boat when it came down. She was stalled, and for a moment lost control of herself. But the remainder of the evening passed sad and gloomy to both. Fred was reticent and moody, and the lady was evi dently fur from beirig happy. The morning came, and Fred and Isabel stood in the parlor. The carriage was at the door. '"Dear Mrs. Lynde, 1 may never sec you again—T must cot !" lie held both her bands, and as lie thus spoke, she started as though an electric bolt had stricken Iter. A strange light Hashed up and gleamed ia her eyes; her bosom heaved, and presently tears crept out on her cheeks. N "God bless you " cried Fred, pressing her hand to his lips in an impassioned man ner. "."'weet peace be thine. Thioobethe victory—of—Life— in Faith and —l-iovc, and —" He broke down at this point: he knew that Isabel sobbed, and that she put forth her bands towards him; bat he dared not stop. The nest he knew he was in the coach, whirling away toward the tiver; and he satJ to himself that he should never be happy again. (J, why bad he scc-n his fiiend's wife? Why had he loved hei? why had she loved him? 'Ylalio, Fred; how's this? Where are you bound sow?" "Eh! Harry?" '"Yes; come, come, ncne of this. Win does that portmanteau mean? Goodness mercy, you arc not bound off? and just as I had promised Bella that she should become acquainted with my friend and i aragoti, my chum Fred." "Promised Bella?" gasped Fred. "Yes, my wife. Here, my Bella, here is Mr. Fred Farley, and I lelicve he thinks of deserting." "Really, .Mr. Farley, tbisis not fiiendly." "Hold on," interrupted Harry;."l bavo a big authority, by Way of ownership, over this boat; if you have important business in New York, I'll have her hold on until you can instruct the clerk how to transact it for you. He is reliable.'" "First," whispered Fred, "what Isabel is that up at the villa?" "Ob, my sweet sister, That's why I call this one "Bella." They are both "Labels." And isn't she a pi eta out girl?" "Your sistor?" "Yes, bless my sou!! You havn't been taking her for ray wife?" "How was I to know?" But she is Miss Lynde- Wasn't she so introduced?" "Your coachman's introduction caught my car as Mrs, and—but don't detain the boat. My— my business may wait. It will not spoil." Fred returned to the villa with Harry, and when they enteral the drawing rcom, 3 they found Isabel Londe, the sis'cr, in e tears. She looked up and saw Fred. He >- took another step forward, and put forth both his hands. ' ''Not gone !" she whispered. r No, Isabel, 'he cried; "I met your s brother; the clouds burst asunder; the sun hght fell upon my path, and, guided by the a bright promising beam*, I have come back. 3 May I remain.' Dear Isabel, it is for you to 0 say." e Whatever answer she made was made upon Fred's bosom, smothered by tears and j. sobs of joy and blessing. The nolle, trne 8 hearted girl was not ashamed to own her , love on the spot, and to declare that she s would gave been very miserable if she had t never seen her lover-again, for that he was - her lover, she knew, llut that he had mis 1 taken her for her brother's wife she had not mistrusted until he came to bid her a final i adieu. Then the truth burst upon her, but > she could not then correct him without r seeming to avow her own love. She forgot that Bella had been persuaded to aecoropa -3 ny her husband at the last moment, and 1 that she was filling a plaee which the guest i had expeeted to find fi'led by another. r THE MAGNETIC WELL OF MICHI GAN The Detroit and Milwaukee Railway crosses the State of Michigan in a straight line east and west. St. Johns is a village station on this road midway between Lake i Huron and Lake Michigan. Thirty miles north of St. Johns—therefore almost in the centre of the Peninsula, is the village of St. i | Louis, in Gratiot county. In this out of the way spot, inaccessible except by bad wagon-roads through the forest, a wonder has lately appeared. A well 3J inches in diameter, bored for salt and oil, began, al lite debth of 200 feet, to spout "magnetic water. ' at the rate of 300 gallons per min ute, which amounts to 400,000 gallons every day—and to a height of 24 feet above the surface. There is nothing indeed astonish ing in this quantity, or force ; for the ccn : tral area of Michigan is, as to its geological ; structure, a closed basin, properly arranged 1 for supplying arleritn wells with both abun ; dance and head of water; and, in this spe | cia! ease, the auger, after going down j through 40 feet of drift clay and gravel with j J occasional houlders, and then 30 feet of sand I | gravel, and the 15 feet of blue shale, found ! | a deposit of coarse sand and gravel 55 feet ! I thick, and under that a deposit of suia'l | stones 0 feet thick, and then a solid rock. 1 i These sands and gravels are surcharged with I ' water, which is kept down by the covering ] of Hue shale, and would spout to the sur ! face through any hole. But the water itself constitutes the mar v, 1. Three hundred and sixty sick people | arrived from all parts of the state and from I the neighboring States, were in the village | la.-t week, living as best they could, in pri i vate houses, outhouses, bams and stables, I tor the purpose of drinking and bathing in | the water of the well. Its properties seem i to have magical power over rheumatism and paralysis. A reliable friend, a physi- | | cian practising at Newcastle, in Delaware, j j just returned from St. Louis, told us that j be saw a patient brought to the place on a fitter, unuble to move a joint in all his body save his neok, and that but slightly, and I ; having had no good continuous sleep for i ; months. In two days he slei t soundly, and 1 i could move bis hip and knee joints comfort-1 ably. lie saw another, who had come to ; the well five weeks before, with his hands | crippled into bird's talons and wasted away: j j his hands had become strait and flexible, | | and were pink and soft and plump with new i I flesh like a ehi'd's. He chopped wood and ; did what other work he pleased. That the water is diuretic, affecting the ! kidneys, everybody perceives; and that its ; medical power lies in its ability to rectify the over secretion and poisonous distribution' | of uric acid or its salts throughout the hu man system, is probable. Its composition | has been determined by Prof. Samuel P. | DufEeld, a well known chemist of Detroit, | confirmed by an analysis made in Chicago. In every wine gallon (temperature 60°, ; specific gravity 1.011) were 06.50 grains I sulphate of lime, 6.72 silicate of lime, 106.40 bicarbonate of soda. 09.40 bicarbonate of , lime, 17.50 bicarlonare magnesia, 1.20 Li carbonate iron, 2.82 free silica, 2,00 organic matter and loss in analysis, 6.21 free carbo nic acid gas, with traces of chlorine and sulphuretted hydrogen. We take it for grauted that ncitner iodine nor bromine were present; and that Prof. Duffield did not for get to test lor lithium. Such a pool of Bethesda is a god-send to the State of Michigan.

("If I could but touch the hem of his robe.") Truly there is more in heaven and earth than has yet got inlaid to the surface of our philosophy. Any chemist must smile at the above statements, and yet the testimony to their truth is superabundant and quite conclusive. Mr. Duffield says, "as regard* the rationale of this magnetic state of the spring I candidly admit I am not able to give a solution which would j robabTy io fu ture years bo either satisfactory to myself or physicists at large." In another part of his report he says: "that the water is j charged with galvanic properties is proven from the fact that tin cups and glass turn biers are soon galvanized with a eoa'icg that cannot be washed off, much resembling gold in appearance. That this is highly charged with magnectic properties is known by hold ing a knife blade in the flowing water for ten minutes when it will become perma | "ently magnetized so as to lift needles and small nails." ~ It iimpossible that the boring tools have struek a north and south running fissure, filled with sand and gravel; and that thus fissure (like all gash vein faults of the earth's crust) is the permanent channel of a powerful earth-current of galvanism, com municating sideways, with the atmospheric space through this artificial aperture of a well. —U.

"Well, I thiuk," said he, "I'll bo a law yer, like my papa, or au engineer, and drive thecUs—or, may be I'd lea minister." Turning to his little sister I asked— "And, Susie, what arc you going to do?" "0, I'm going to be a lady, and make was flowers, and— get married." "But, Susie," said I, "don't you think you ought to be a minister, or something, as well as .Johnnie?" The poor cbi'd looked exceedingly discon oerted for an instant, but Jobnuie came promptly to her relief with the von sequiyir "\Y hy Auntie, Sudie can't be anything, slit a nothing hut a gii I /'' Here is the secret of the whole matter — a wrong idea of woman's place, a conse quent false education, deepening, genera tion after generation, into the minds of the people and influencing character, until at last an abnormal condition is taken for the natural and proper state of affairs. Says a writer in a late number of the Atlantic , "If you would abolish the inebriate you must begin with his grandmother." If we would inaugurate and build up a better system of society, in which woman shall not only be better trained than now for the one "chief end of women" — matrimony —but also be fitted for the emergencies which must meet her if her prince does not come, and may if he does, we must begin now, with the gen eration just growing up, with the little tod lers who cling to our knees—the babies who nestle in our bosoms. That the cause of this is not any inherent peculiarity of women, but arises from the educational and social Sources I have spoken of, I think most of my readers will admit. In its moral tendencies human nature is the same in men and women, and the differences alluded to have arisen from the diverse ed ucation. God made one law to govern hu manity—men have set up a different code for men and wemen. The one tex has been left and untrammelled, to make the , best of its possibilities ; the other has been pcDt up, cramped and confined until natural development has become impossible. As well expect that a tree, planted in a pot, tied down to earth and twisted out of natur al shape, should grow as erect, vigorous and beautiful as one left free in root and branch, as that nature which is hampered and re pressed by social and educational restriction, condemning it to subjection and inferiority, should develop harmoniously and divinely. Before condemning a woman to a position as the natural inferior of man, allow her a chance to prove what her nature is. This opportunity the has not now, she cannot have until she stands by man's side, equal ly unfettered, and free to develope the pos sibilities of her being. To give her this po sition she must be as free before the law, and must have equal legal and educational ad vantages with him. Then, and only then, can men say whether she is inferior or no'. If she is so by nature she will stay so when all possible advantages are awarded to her, for spheres and conditions appointed by God will take care of themselves. It will take time, and far different work than has yet been given to the cause, before sLe will have legal equality with man, but the latter 1 advantage can be accorded to her now. : Grave obstacles and also ideas of expedien cy stand in the way of the first, but there is no reason wby our colleges and higher schools should not open their curriculum to women; no reason why they should not be addressed to ihe professions, trades and employments of men, as they become iutel Actually and physically fitted for tletu. Let women once have free access of the ca reers for which they are adapted, and they will no longer be clamoring for those which are suitable only for men ; society will reorganized on a grander, truer basis; men and women will regard life and its belong ings with noblo vision, and bo mutually at tracted to each other bv worthier sympa thies ; marriage will cease to besought from base motives, or as a refuge from want, and thus one of the most terrible curses of cur present state legalized prostitution, will be ! abolished, while true marriage will le vastly increased; and, as the conditions of birth have an untold influtnee upon life, the com ing generations w ill be far grander and more harmonious than ours —Hannah Mac L. Shepard, in Packard's Monthly for Novem ber. A CLERGYMAN went to a hotel to order a dinner lor a number of clerical friends. "May I ask, sir," demandtd the waiter gravely, "whether the party is High Church or Low Church ?" "Now, what on earth," cried the clergymen, "Jo my friends' opin ion matter to you?" "A great deal, sir," rejoined the waiter; "If High Church, 1 must provide mort wine; if JMW Church, more wit ties."

He says: In consequence of the arrival of cold weather once more, about tlre=e day? there is a universal putting up Of stoves, prepar atory for the winter campaign, and undoubt edly a great deal of profanity is indulged io. One who has ha I considerable experience in the work of putting up stoves say? the first step to be taken is to put on a very old and ragged coat, under the impression that when be gets his month full of plaster, it will keep his shirt bo ;m clean. Next he get? his liands inside the plaee where the pipe ought to go, and blacks his fingers, and then he carefully makes a black mark down on one side of his nose. It is impossible to make any headway, in doing this work until, this mark is made down the rile of the nose. Having got his face /properly marked, the victim is ready to begin the ceremony. The head of the family—who is the big goose of the sacrifice— grasps one side of the bottom of the stove, and his wife and the hired girl take hold of the other. In this way the load is started fiotii the woodshed towards tire parlor. Going through the door, the | head of the family will carefully ewiug his side of the stove around aod jam his thumb nail against the door. This part of the cer emony is never omitted. Having g it the stove comfortably in place, the next thing is to find the leg?. Two of these are left inside the stove since the spring before. The other two must be hunted after for twenty-five minutes. They are uffhilly found under the ecal. Then the head of the family holds up one side of the stove while his wife puts two of the in place, and next he holds up the other side while the other two are fixed, and one of the first two falls out By the time the stove is on it? legs, he gets reckless and takes off his old coat, regardless of his linen. Then he goes off for the pipe and gets a finder in his eye. It don't make any dif ference how well the pipe was put up year, it will be found a little too short or a little too long. The head of the faniilyjams his hat over his hca 3, and taking a pipe un der each arm, goes to the tin shop to ha7e it fixrd. When he comes back he steps upon one of the best parlor chairs to see if the pipe fits, and bis wife makes him get down for fear he will scratch tfTe varnish off from the chairs with the naiL in his boot heel. In getting down be will surely step on the cat, and may thank his stars it is not the baby i Then he gets an old chair and climbs up to the chimney again to find that in cutting the pipe eff it has been left too big for the hole in the chimney. So he goes to the woodshed and splits ODe side of the end of the pipe, with an old axe, and squeezes it ia his hands to make it smaller. Finally he gets the pipe in shape and finds that the stove does not stand true. Then himself and his wife and the hired girl move the stove to the left, and the legs fall out again. More difficulty with thslegs. Moved to the front a little. Elbow not even with the hole in the chimney, and he goes to the woodshed after some little blocks. While putting the blocks under the legs the pipg comes out of the chimney. That remedied the elbow keeps tipping over to the great alarm of his wife. Head of the family gets the dinner table out, puts the old chair on it, gels his wife to hold the chair, and bal ances himself on it to drive some nails into the ceiling. Drops the hammer onto his w! r o's head. At la-t gets the nails driven, ufckes a wire swing to hold the pipe, bam m .rs a little here, pulls a little there, takes a long breath, and announces the ceremony completed. Job never put up any stoves. It would have ruined his reputation if he had. HAPPINESS IN .UARKIAtiE. KINDLY WORDS FOR TUE HOME CIRCLE. In his discourse in the Spring Street Presbyterian Church, on Sunday, Rev. Dr. Aikman thus delivered a "Lesson to Wives: "The Bible understands human nature full as well as we of this late genera tion do. What is required of the wife is that she shall love her husband supremely, which cannot be done unless she respects and puts ner entire confidence in bim. So fir ss other men ate concerned, she must hold him supremely above them in her mind.' The preacher then considered the various minor duties of the wife toward her husband. He touched upon the too com mon practice of making confidants of some particular friend*, when the husband alone should be her confidant. There is also a tendency ia the household after marriage to neglect to keep up those evidences of af fection which first drew hu*band and wife togetl a-. Greater diligence is necessary to keep their love warm when they have en tered upon the realities of life than when they lived in the dreams of courtship and early happiness. Among the things to be preserved from first to last is that modesty, grace and parity which first won the hus band. Then, there are all the personal at tractions to be continued. Nothing is more coveted by a hightoned man than a charm ing wife—one who can converse with hiui intelligently, and appear to advantage in society ; one who always looks beautiful in her happy face, and attractive in person; one who is not slovenly ; who keeps the home n>at and cheerful; who is full of deli cate attentions, and is absorbed in her hus band's and her family's interests. All these charms can be maintained' by the wife through life by a Kttle attention day to what she knows will please her husband. iV. Jr Commercial Advertiser.
